Goal setting is one thing. Having a plan is another. The plays one makes in life is no different than the plays in a football game. If you have plays to jump into then an audible won’t be a big deal. Sometimes you jump into a situation ready but you are met by changes you were not prepared for. Be ready at all time. Have a plan when going into any situation.
So you like football? No, me either even though I played all through HS. Here is the thing though… It is a good analogy. When playing football the goal is to get to the end zone and make a touchdown or prevent the other team from doing so. Let’s say there are two teams both made up of… CLONES. Everything is identical about them, except this, one team has a plan and has set up steps called plays (plans) in order to reach their goal (TOUCHDOWN THE CROWD GOES WILD!!!) The other team has no plays. Here is about what would happen “…and at the end of the first quarter the score is 70-0.” Sound a bit familiar?
Success comes from having goals and making plans to reach it by taking steps to get there. Simple running out into life and saying “I WANT TO WIN!” isn’t enough for you to win. You will get trampled, mauled ending up bloody bruised and broken. No one wants that for you, least of all us. You need goals, you need plans, you need to use your head for more then holding a helmet on. Start making plans to get what you want, be realistic about them and get a move on. Once everything is in place start rushing until you reach the goal.
Yes, I really do hate football now, to many rules.
